Research Projects



An initiative of the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling at Concordia University, COHDScast is a podcast that unveils the work of researchers and artists who engage with oral history in their practice.


 An extension of the From Balconville to Condoville project, the COHDS played an important role in the Right to the City initative funded by a pedagogical grant from Concordia University.



The “Life Stories of Montrealers Displaced by War, Genocide, and other Human Rights Violations” Community-University Research Alliance ("Montreal Life Stories" CURA) was an oral history project which explored Montrealers’ experiences and memories of mass violence and displacement. From 2007 to 2012, a team of both university and community-based researchers recorded life story interviews with more than 500 Montreal residents.

Going Public: Oral History, New Media and the Performing Arts brings together individuals using interdisciplinary methodologies founded on the core values of collaboration, transparency and shared authority to explore the social, political, and aesthetic dimensions of contemporary international public art practice.

Mapping Memories: Participatory Media, Place-based Stories & Refugee Youth is a collaborative media project which uses personal stories and a range of media tools (video, sound walks, mapping, photography) to better understand the experiences of youth with refugee experience in Montreal.
